Shell and de-vein the shrimp. Butterfly shrimp by slicing them down the

Place a wok over medium-high heat. When hot, drizzle in half of the oil.

Reheat wok over medium heat; add remaining tablespoon of oil and the salt.

tossing until it comes to a boil.

into a creamy sauce. return the shrimp to sauce, add the green onions and
swirl in the sesame oil.
